Lublin Castle is a great place to survive a rainy day. You can spend a lot of time in the museum and and castle buildings.

The Lublin cstle offers a wide collection of paintings, arms and pottery. It also is the entrance to the Trinity chapel (well known for its fresco's). When visiting Lublin, it is worthwhile to stroll around for an hour or so. Unfortunately the collection lacks a...More

Lublin castle is not very grand like other castles in europe. You can visit it once and see the museum inside but there is nothing architecturally appreciative here. But the walk to the castle is really beautiful you can see old town and some small...More
